I've been a devoted blogger since 2007 (edging now towards 1800 posts). The medium suits me. I like to write long paragraphs, craft sentences every once in awhile, and think about what I'd like to reflect on, and hopefully have a decent photograph, or two.
Reviewing just now a search on front raised beds brought so many great images and reflections that promoted memories, to print out ahead of a gathering at the house next week around four-season vegetable gardening.
My blog is a garden/nature journal, after all. It's just for me, without any other purpose, I guess.
But it's brought great community with fellow garden bloggers (woo, hoo, and yay, Garden Blogger Flings!)
Even though most of us (Fling bloggers) communicate now as friends on Facebook (that's my experience), I so value the connections and friendships that I've made through the Fling --
Hooray for blogging as a medium, even if it seems LONG-WINDED in a Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook social media age.
